Unifilter Group Buy List

In for the group buy, x 2. Two ABS, mine and a buddy's. Seems like a no-brainer for preventative maintenance if you spend any time off road. Ken (Did a little repair on the list header/column label) (Hopefully didn't add any errors!)

Stepper motor

I think the more that Triumph hear about this problem from owners the better so I emailed Triumph Australia on this issue as I have had the same prob just 500ks into first dirt trip...I must say I was very impressed by the quick response I recieved from them (same day)...They recommend the use of Never Seize copper grease. A couple of more emails back and forth and we agreed that it would be a good idea for Triumph to issue a 'quick fix' to dealers across the country to do the lube of the arm/bush during the early services rather than people trying to do it themselves. So they said they would draft it up and issue through Triumph online notice board.

If they follow this through, then I will be very impressed by Triumph's ability to listen to its customers and try fix problems for owners.....I have an upcoming service in early Sept so watch this space........

I would like to add further comment on the stepper motor issue and tell what happen to me on this issue;
This was an issue for me from very early on from about 600km on the odometer, as I wasted no time getting the Tiger into the dirt and dusty conditions. After this ride I went home and gave the Tiger a wash and the problem seamed to go away. I told my dealer about it and they suggested to upload the latest map for the Tiger, which made a difference to the Tiger. Until last week I was toward the end of a 1300km ride and again in dusty conditions. I was able to get the bike to run normally by turning the bike on and off three or four times getting it to do its full cycle. Once I got home I went straight to My local dealer and informed them of the problem. So the Tiger was booked in for sugery. when I took her in I asked the mechanic if he could call me when he had it apart so I could have a look for my self what the problem was.

The mechanic was great in explaining it all to me and what the actual problem was. He explained to me that it was not actually the stepper motor that it was the arm that the stepper motor actuates, (see the picture bellow) Only on some Tigers the problem is the brass bush in this arm has not been lubricated during manufacture at the triumph factory therefore allowing dust to enter the bush and stop it from moving, the mechanic showed me the dust that he cleaned from inside this bush (it was amazing how much dust came out of this little bush).

The remidy this offending bush is to lubricate with 'Never Seize' and to never have this problem again.

This is a big job for self maintenance once the tank etc are off and then the air box the top of the Throttle bodies have to come off as this arm is between two of them. Once back together the carbys have to be sinked back together. The mechanic said if I wanted to check this myself in the future to bring it back in and he would sink the Throttle bodies again for me.

All is good again. I hope I have explained things right and have put some minds at ease to what the acual problem is. if you are worried about this and are giong on a big trip I would get it looked at. It took my mechanic about two & half hours to do this.

That don't look half bad. Fuel gauge working will be essential IMO. And being able to fit the OE locking filler cap.

Any idea of cost yet?

And, is it/will it be paintable? Or available in black?

The tank is already being shown on Safari's site. I have one of their tanks for my TE610 and do not think they are good candidates for being painted, maybe some one else has had success doing so.

Triumph team didn't feel the Triumph engine guard was sufficient? Looks like they used someone else's. That is a message that should be taken seriously by Triumph in their accessory design.

Please count me in for one for a 2012 ABS. I'm in Alberta, Canada so hopefully logistics will not exclude me.
Still not sure how to add my name to the list if this does'nt do it.If anyone can straighten me out Regarding this please feel free to PM me.

Thanks,
Gary
